Austin Dillon, driver of the No. 3, is currently in 22nd place in the Monster Energy Series standings. Daniel Hemric, driver of the No. 8, is in 25th place and also outside the playoff field. There are three regular-season races remaining before the NASCAR Playoffs begin.

In the Xfinity Series, NASCAR cited the No. 19 team for one lug nut not properly installed after last weekend's race at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course. NASCAR fined crew chief Jeff Meendering $5,000. Brandon Jones drove the Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota to a 10th-place finish last week.
